Prabhas urges all to watch Sita Ramam
Meanwhile, Prabhas has asked everyone to watch Dulquer’s film in theatres. At an event of Sita Ramam, the Baahubali star was the main attraction. At the event, he even called Pushpa star Rashmika Mandanna the ‘most wanted heroine’.
The star was quoted saying, “Some films are meant to be watched in theatres. I saw the trailer and visuals of Sita Ramam. The makers went to Russia and Kashmir to shoot the film. This is a film that should be watched in theatres. The budget which the producers spent and the scale is huge. For example, do we stop going to the temple because there’s a pooja room at home? For people in cinema, theatres are our temples. It’s because of you. We should watch Sita Ramam in theatres. We have Rashmika, who’s the most-wanted heroine. We have a huge star cast too. We should watch it in theatres.”
